National Chinese newspaper China Daily wrote in its editorial Saturday that "it is hoped that the Egyptian Military, government, and people will make every effort to maintain social stability and restore normal order." The statement is the first official one to come out of Beijing, Reuters reported.

The editorial also warned that "if the current situation continues to deteriorate, it will not only be nightmarish for the 80 million Egyptians, but also perilous to regional peace and security."

Saturday, the day Mubarak was ousted, was also the 99th anniversary of the abdication of the last emperor of China, who stepped down on Feb 12, 1912, Reuters reported.
